release them. They only move outward about 0.5cm before they stop though. I
don't want to force them as that will damage them. Anyone seen this type
before and able to let me in on the secret of getting them off?

But not until you've got your allen keys out to remove the handles. There
should be a little allen grub screw on the bottom of the shaft of the
handle that attaches the handle to the latch spindle (can just see it in
